Skeleton Crew

Coming Soon: 2/12 - 3/10

Playing 2/12 - 3/10 at Southwest Arts Center


At the start of the Great Recession, one of the last auto stamping plants in Detroit is on shaky ground. As a result, each of the workers has to make choices on how to move forward if their plant goes under. Shanita has to decide how she’ll support herself and her unborn child. Faye has to decide how and where she’ll live. Dez has to figure out how to make his ambitious dreams a reality. Power dynamics shift as their manager, Reggie, is torn between doing right by his work family and by the red tape in his office. Powerful and tense, Skeleton Crew is the third of Dominique Morisseau’s Detroit cycle trilogy.
